    My incubator went on lockdown yesterday, five minutes ago my first duck egg hatched, I can hardly sit still...just look at this darling face!!!

    There are 3 other eggs rocking like crazy, I'm so excited! I've hatched chickens but this is my first duck egg hatching and I'm tickled to bits!

    So do ducks have an egg tooth on their precious little bills?

    Egg number two is pipped already. I can't believe these boogers are hatching 3 days early!
    These are Pekins. The eggs from my Pekin girls, they are 6 months old. Out of 20 eggs, 14 are fertile and have been growing great. I'll probably be taking photos all night long now LOL

    Quote:I'm sorry, in my excitement I missed your question. Yup, duckies have an egg tooth on their bills. I swear there is just nothing sweeter than a duckling/duck face!

    I'm still waiting on the baby to dry so I can get some more shots, he/she is flopping all around in there, giving the sibling eggs a good work out LOL Another egg is pipped, I'm hoping it hatches tonight too :)

    Congrats! It's so fun to watch them hatch. I know I'm glued to the bator when we have duckies or chicks hatching. Can't wait to see more pics!!
